Tim’s has a great collection of books in a wide variety of subjects. You can spend a fair amount of time here browsing! The shopkeeper, I assume Tim, is very nice and personable.

Great place with a decent selection. Was happy to see a relatively good science section as well. Prices are also reasonable and the owner was very friendly.

Tucked back from Commercial Street, this shop has a wonderful selection of used books covering all subjects. Tim was very knowledgeable of what he had in stock and quite helpful with suggestions.

Tucked away on Commercial Street, this store was a real surprise. The selection of books was impressive; there were both classics and more recent publications. You can find some excellent titles at a great price.
